Demonology features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English texts in their entirety.

Daemonologie-in full Daemonologie, In Forme of a Dialogue, Divided into three Books: By the High and Mighty Prince, James &c. was written and published in 1597 by King James VI of Scotland (later also James I of England) as a philosophical dissertation on contemporary necromancy and the historical relationships between the various methods of divination used from ancient black magic.

Demonology" features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English text in its entirety. Read full description. See details and exclusions. The book gives as much of an insight into the mentality of King James 1st, as it does into anything associated with witchcraft etc. Its well worth ploughing through, for that reason, but it is an exceedingly difficult read.

Written by King James I and published in 1597, the original edition of Demonology is widely regarded as one of the most interesting and controversial religious writings in history, yet because it is written in the language of its day, it has been notoriously difficult to understand.

Now occult scholar Donald Tyson has modernized and annotated the original text, making this historically important work accessible to contemporary readers. Also deciphered here, for the first time, is the anonymous tract News from Scotland, an account of the North Berwick witch trials over which King James presided.

Tyson examines King James' obsession with witches and their alleged attempts on his life, and offers a knowledgeable and sympathetic look at the details of magick and witchcraft in the Jacobean period. Demonology features historical woodcut illustrations and includes the original old English texts in their entirety. This reference work is the key to an essential source text on seventeenth-century witchcraft and the Scottish witch trials

Fantastic book. I love reading about the old ways, and how they were perceived by culture and society.

When doing a paper on King James I and witchcraft, this text helped so much. Not only does it contain both works on witchcraft by the king, but the summaries and key points saved me so much time!

Gave a insight on how King Jame tried the unknown.....
It was listed as containing the original text but, it is NOT the original text. It is an updated text. I wanted (and expected) to see the original text as it was written in old English and not a revised version.
